That can't be god for Atlanta or it's fans. Your dynamic player just learned what it's like to win and now has the bug.
If Atlanta brass does not spend big money to the limit of the cap this seaon to show they are willing to put talent around Ilya - he'll be demanding a trade or walk like Hossa did as a UFA.
Considering the Thrashers won the SE with a team that was just as talented as the one that came in 3rd to last in the league this season, I am not that worried.
Implementing a system that will cut down on SOG against, and adding another puck moving defenseman(and already adding a physical Dman like Valabik) would drastically change the teams fortunes.
I know most people think the Thrashers are a bottom feeder, but in all honesty...the team on the ice was far better than its record. It was just horribly coached, with a couple of key players having down seasons.
The Thrashers do need to spend the cap money they have by losing Holik and Hossa, but getting the right coach in will do a world of good.
